    Face shields are intended to be worn *in addition to*, and NOT *instead of*, face masks. Face shields primarily protect the wearer, while face masks primarily protect others from the wearer.

    A few days ago I finished up "attending" an 11-day virtual film festival. And next week I'm going to start attending another one. During the last festival I met up a few times with three of my...

    Exactly! The thread title is just as totally useless as one called "Question". Or, in the GH4 forum, a thread called "GH4". But alas, I have a fear that Andy will not be persuaded. He seems totally...

    The story just has to make sense in the world in which it is set. If everyone in the film is wearing masks, there should be no problem as long as it is established--either implicitly or...

    While I didn't think Avatar was "crap", I did find it totally underwhelming. But that had nothing at all to do with the 3D--that was actually the best part of the movie for me. What it lacked was a...

    I prefer landscape so I have room for the various tools, or for having two programs side by side.

    If you had been walking in the sun, I'm surprised the reading wasn't higher. Unless your forehead was covered by a hat brim. Anyway, surface temperature readings are essentially pointless here; there...

    I suppose using the word "confidential" on the ad might be useful. Another element that would (or should) weed out the people who look at things more critically, so the people who actually respond...

    Whatever way you think is the most interesting and most apt to engage an audience. You just have to write and see what comes out of it. Writing is work, there's no way getting around that.

    Why in the world would a job announcement be watermarked "Confidential"? Perhaps it means "Please don't share this with anyone else--they might point out to you that we're a scam."

    I'm a firm believer in the idea that knowing where a story ends up makes it much easier to plot it out. Each plot point should be supported in some way by what has come before. Likewise with...
